A great place to start the night is Bar Rouge – where the view over the iconic Bund is spectacular and even includes a picture-perfect Chinese flag. As the night goes on, a suite of local and international DJs take control of the mixing decks its terraces turn into brilliant outdoor dance floors.

Glam and lofty’ it-bar’ M1nt is also has an amazing view over the Shanghai skyline and is popular with the usual suspects. Dress hot for the bouncers and, assuming you get in, keep your eyes peeled for faux bi-curious models dancing on the bar but steer clear of ex-pats washed up from Dubai.

For events and listings during your visit the easiest thing is to check out the latest from Time Out Shanghai.
